False Cummerbund skirt

I love a good cummerbund, so I took a skirt pattern I had and folded up a pleated waist band, and voila!

Love this little skirt, shiny black waxed linen, pockets, and a short hem!

Material Notes

waxed linen

Casual, Punk, Rock

      I used a pattern I made myself. But I’m sure you could use any high waisted skirt with a wide waist band.

      and thanks!

      oh and I used a piece of canvas interfacing in the shape of the original waistband. I just pleated onto it. pinned it down, and then sewed it all up.
